Welcome to NH!
I heard train 511 talking to the dispatcher but the local switcher was tied down. I looked west and noticed a string of cars with a Fred on the end. Turns out there was a westbound train ready to leave! I cruised down to the other end to a crossing to grab a shot. I heard the brakes release and just when I thought my luck on a roll it went sour. The train radio'd the dispatcher and the crew said the alerter wasn't turning off. This meant the train was stuck in emergency mode and wouldn't allow it to move. The crew hopelessly tried to move the train but could not and had to call a mechanic to drive 2 hours from Lewiston Junction to work on the train. So much for that!
